    Certain things like this bug me, but I find it is largely down to the maker of the skill.

    For example,

    Alexa, ask unofficial ron swanson for some advice, where "unoffical ron swanson" is the trigger for it. Why? The unoffical is unecessary.

    Likewise, the hilarious "ask for a ****" has the trigger "ask for a ****". Just "****" would suffice.

    I've not come across an issue where Alexa being the trigger word getting in the way is an issue. For instance with Audible, you dont really need to mention Audible at all. Just have to ask what you want. Read my book [name]. Go to chapter [whatever].
